We are the Bannermen
The knights of Salisbury are sent north as envoys to King Nanteleod; ordered to grovel and smooth over the unspeakable tragedy of Maid Jenna the year before. On their way they stay a night in the manor of King Leodegrance to deliver a message from Lady Ellen.
- King Aesc of Kent and King Aethelswith of Est Seaxe both march out with their armies. They stop and besiege London, one army on each side of the river.
- Ulfius is greatly outnumbered, and he hears that Saxon ships have sailed for Windsor to block his retreat. He fights a short battle, and then escapes with his army at night.
- The Saxons besiege London, but although the Saxons normally don’t have siege equipment to break in, this time they do. They have hired Sir Helifer the Mercenary, who directs batteries and engineers, and even several mobs of desperate swordsmen to go up the ladders.
- London surrenders to Sir Helifer and the Saxon lords, who thereupon enter and take possession of the city. The garrisons at both castles lock up tight.
- The King of Malahaut marches south, joined by Elmet, and begins plundering Linden.
- King Nanteleod marches down the Trent, and three leaders meet outside of the city. Corneus plays it cagey, Malahaut is aggressive, and Nanteleod accepts the challenge and proposes that Linden Pool, with its duke and little army intact, be the prize of the battle between the kings.
- Nanteleod wins the day when Malahaut are crushed. It is a decisive victory.
